Multifactor authentication

Two-factor or multifactor authentication is a method of secure login, which protects your account by requiring a secondary form of authentication in addition to a password.

In practice, this other method of authentication can be, for example, a mobile app or a code sent as a text message. For most people, this feature is already well-known from social media services or online banking.
